lyrics

When I left you in the morning you were drunk and preaching pain
how could you watch my empty dancing in the clothing that we made
they were made from old garments, they were made from things we saved
And I loved you in that moment and I love you to this day
But could you clothe me now in rags
and am I still to just complain
like a king to watch his kingdom as it crumbles in his reign
and am I old enough to laugh
as my body starts to age
and I’ll watch you as you pass, as you turn the other page

but come and take me home
and lose in my hands
and tell me what I owe
and I’ll be a better man

When I came to you mourning, I was barely in one piece
I was crumbling at the corners, I was bursting at the scenes
I was screaming inside out, I was blinded by my own
So I walked right past your house and I headed straight back home
But could you house me now in ruins
and am I still to just complain
like a king to watch his kingdom as it crumbles in his reign
and am I old enough to laugh
as my body starts to age
and I’ll watch you as you pass, as you turn the other page

but come and take me home
and lose in my hands
and tell me what I owe
and I’ll be a better man

but I say no, not yet
I should leave but I just can’t move
I say no, not yet
I can be a better man for you

but come and take me home
and lose in my hands
and tell me what I owe
and I’ll be a better man
